Did Nap fall off the radar screen?

Does anyone know what became of him?

I can also tell you that he is not in the member list.
That is about all I could find.

Maybe he and Raycraft opened a wire wrangling shop in Tahiti with the money they made posting here.

To do the number of postings he did, and to simply call it quits seems kinda odd. Although -I went on a sabatical in May for 2 months when I was working my buns off during the college change-over time. Didn't he have between 3-5000 posts or so?

Hope he didn't buy the farm. He was a smart guy that offered the board something.

I always figured Raycraft (wasn't his name Bob?) got fired for his oft repititous remark.

nap has dropped of the face of the earth and racraft (Bob) wasn't fired.
No clues where nap went looking at his past posts and racraft is still a member but hasn't posted since Feb/2008.
I think like many others who have accumulated a large number of posts (13,987 for racraft!) you burn yourself out.

You know sometimes you can get frustrated with a poster. The ones who think they know best what info you need and after struggling to help them for several posts writing there are no other wires they write something like "except the two red ground wires".

Nap got mad at something that happened and didn't come back.

Yes, that is amazing that some of the posters here have posted for that long. All those hours invested. It almost could ruin a marriage in some cases. Then again, maybe it saves some.

Ahhhh. Well, someone also did in the auto forum. Luckily for us motorgeeks, he has since returned.

Although I read the forums I participate in several times of every day I often will go for several days without posting.

I also get frustrated at times with one-post wonders and those that come here with some harebrained scheme (usually dangerous) wanting someone to sprinkle holy water on the idea and bless it while ignoring the advice of professionals. Sometimes it is all I can do to keep a civil tongue in my fingers.

There are other high volume posters that suddenly disappeared. A couple that I remember were IMEDUC and Twelvepole. IIRC Twelvepole was having some health issues.

Furd, I've had instances such as you describe. Even had an attorney who wanted us to bless his scheme to build a wiring set up and blatantly ignore NEC. My answer didn't set well with one of the members and I was chastised, but I couldn't allow a legal professional trying to circumvent rules to continue in his dangerous endeavor. The member meant well, I'm sure, but I couldn't care less. When someone knows better and chooses to do stupid stuff, my gentlemanly manner is set aside.
I like the camaraderie and bantering we have with each other. We back each other up and agree to disagree in a nice way. It all washes.
